The rapper who had previously said that he had not been dating anyone since divorce if not to count dating apps ( among which he mentioned it part Grindr) now claims to have been misunderstood. He confessed that it is extremely hard for him to find someone to go out with and that he had only a few dates since divorce which are not worth mentioning, but his preferences remained unchanged. He still identifies as straight as he used to before. HE is not homophobic and has never been one, but he is not interested in men himself. His spokesman officially confirmed that the phrase about using gay dating apps was nothing but a joke. Eminem used to come under fire for homophobic slurs in his lyrics. He was told Rolling Stone that he hadn’t used the words “fag” or “faggot” in a homophobic way, saying he hadn’t “really equated” they would come across that way. In a song titled Criminal on his second studio album. The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem’s lyrics include: “My words are like a dagger with a jagged edge/ That’ll stab you in the head, whether you’re a fag or lez/ Or the homosex, hermaph or a trans-a-vest/Pants or dress? Hate fags? The answer’s yes”.
